The list comes out of lengthy analysis of a franchisor’s efforts to provide veterans an environment for success. The magazine submits more than 100 questions focused around financial incentives, brand performance and policies that cater to veterans and reservists.
USA Today, G.I. Jobs magazine and Franchise Business Review have also recognized FASTSIGNS in the past year as one of the top franchises in the nation for military veterans. The global franchise is part of the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) VetFran program that provides military veterans with special incentives and assistance to open a franchise. All veterans who choose to become FASTSIGNS franchise partners can take advantage of specific incentives, the company says, including a 50 percent reduced franchise fee of $18,750 and reduced royalties for the first twelve months. FASTSIGNS is the only franchise in its industry to offer a 50 percent discount to any veteran, without stipulations. Additionally, with more than 400 markets available, veterans have the opportunity to open a FASTSIGNS center in their ideal market.
